  4. 4. It was a great win by Norwood’s B team with two goals Norwood B 2 Linaker B 1 by Ryan Taylor Reid. The first goal of the match happened when Josh Watkins served a great chip over Linaker. Once again the great Ryan was on the ball and charged forward, took a shot and its there! As Ryan sprinted up field from defence he made a brilliant tackle took a shot but the goalkeeper gave us a corner. He wiped the sweat off his brow, looked up and made an amazing cross to Gabriel Angay but Linaker’s defender jumped for it and scored.

With Mr Postlethwaite setting the pace, we walked all the way to Ocean Plaza in less than hour. Even Mrs Coleman managed it with her short legs! As we have been writing a Quest story recently, we decided to watch Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. It was a brilliant film. Look out after half term for our film review. As the weather was lovely, we decided to have our lunch at the end of the Pier and then walked home via Hesketh Park. We all enjoyed our day and can’t wait for our next trip out.
